New Users / Re: How to Install printer software in peppermint OS 6
« on: February 19, 2018, 11:35:19 pm »
Hello Sabsun,
In case you haven't done so already, here http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/?OSC=LX you can find the drivers for your printer (I have already checked it, they exist). Download and install them with gdebi so to pull the dependencies. Then you will be able to add your printer with "Printers" from Menu.
I have the XP-245 printer from Epson....

Software & Applications / Re: Volumeicon
« on: February 04, 2018, 03:49:03 pm »
Thanks PCNetSpec for your kind interest.
I placed the command
Code: [Select]
bash -c "sleep 10 ; volumeicon"
in the Autostart section but to no avail. Have I done right or did you mean that I had to edit some other specific file?
But I finally managed to make it autoload as followed:
On my MX17 system I noticed that pulseaudio is unchecked on startup and a script named "pulse-start" is used instead. Its code:
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
start-pulseaudio-x11
sleep 2
volumeicon &
exit 0
. So I sudo-copied the "pulse-start" script in /usr/bin, unchecked "PulseAudio Sound System" on Autostart and manually entered "pulse-start" on Autostart.

Software & Applications / Volumeicon [SOLVED]
« on: February 04, 2018, 04:50:22 am »
Hi to all
I decided to try using volumeicon-alsa instead of the pulseaudio plugin as the later looks big and somewhat ugly when the panel is used as verical deskbar.
Volumeicon works good but it does not load automatically on the system tray and I have to manually load it every time. I have added "volumeicon" on the Autostart section of LXSession Configuration but it insists not to load on system startup.
Any ideas on that? Maybe I should add some delay but I don't have any idea how to do that on Peppermint.

Hardware / Epson XP-245 printer - Draft mode?
« on: January 31, 2018, 01:12:07 pm »
Hi to all,
I have the above mentioned printer and scanner and I have installed the necessary drivers from this page: http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/searchModule. Both printer and scanner work OK.
Nevertheless I would like to ask if there is a way to print in draft mode in order to save ink. There is no such option on programms' specific print dialogs or on "Printer's Properties".
I have to boot in Win10 every time I need to print and everyone here knows how much annoying this is...
Is there probably another user who has managed this on an Epson printer?

Thanks in advance.

New Users / Re: Logging out to User Switching not Lockscreen
« on: January 16, 2018, 05:27:23 am »
Hello,
When you press the Menu button you can see four icons on the upper or lower right corner of it. The one with the little man is the Switch Users button. Or you can choose Switch User after you press the Log Out button.
But there is no option on the xfce4-powermanager for the system to log out when lid is closed or screen times out...

My machine is the Dell Mini 10v netbook.
I uncommented the line #GRUB_TERMINAL="console" in /etc/default/grub and then did sudo update-grub as proposed on the second link of pin's message. That did the trick. The system boots normally.
I have not yet tried the "GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=text and sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg" method. Maybe today after work.
 :)Thanks a lot pin! :)

Advanced Topics / Re: Graphics problem after updating to 4.13.0-26 kernel
« on: January 14, 2018, 12:23:52 pm »
Hello,
The second inxi output is from the system being in recovery mode. This is the only way for me to boot the 4.13.0-26 kernel and have graphics....

9
I have followed the usual update procedure 2 days ago as proposed by the Update Manager and the kernel has been updated to version 4.13.0-26. But booting resulted in a 3/4 black screen and with graphics only on the right 1/4 of the screen. Sorry but I didn't find how to take a screenshot in order to be more precise. I can still boot in the older kernel because I have changed the Grub configuration to show the boot menu shortly after the update and before trying the newer kernel.
I can boot to the new kernel only if I choose the recovery mode and then the system boots with graphics on a resolution of 800X600.
Any ideas on that? And I'm wandering whether it should be on Peppermint defaults that the Grub menu shows up with a delay of 10 sec so that the user has the choice to choose which kernel to boot...
Here are the inxi outputs  - first on the 4.10.0-40-generic kernel and then on 4.13.0-26-generic in safe mode...

What are you running Peppermint on? / Dell Mini 10v Netbook
« on: January 05, 2018, 12:57:21 pm »
Not a single problem during installation and nothing to do after it. Peppermint 8 Respin runs as it is.
I have bought this netbook back in 2009 and used the preinstalled WinXP no more than 10 times - it was simply unusable from the very beginning. Every lightweight Linux distro had been running smoothly of course. During the last 3 years I have been very seriously considering to put the machine in a nice little grave because it seemed that I wouldn't had been able to use Internet again. I mean that although it seemed to like really lightweight distros like Bunsenlabs (102mb memory usage just after boot-up), Internet browsing was an absolute pain - having to wait for ages for modern webpages like techradar.com or Youtube just to load. Peppermint was a really big surprise. I know that netbooks have never been what they were made to in the first place and are considered ancient since a long time ago, but my little buddy has been resurrected from the dead. It doesn't fly of course (it never did) but I can finally use it to browse the Internet reasonably fast.
Thanks to the people behind this wonderful distro.
